But the thing is, all that you've written applies to radical Islam too. And they are much more active in spreading their ideology, much more aggressive and they do actually have terrorist organizations.
We've got a couple of those parties in Sweden, one (the 'mildest' one) is currently in our parliament and got 13% of the votes in the last election, and since then they've gained in popularity. Sure, they say they're not that bad when you ask them, but when you read their programme, it's pretty obvious that democracy isn't their strong suit and that they are quite racist. They also have a 'tail' that threatens and attacks people who dare to speak out against them, some of those attacks are planned on sites that high-ranking members of this party support, but the party itself maintains just enough distance that it can't be seen as liable, and even though its representatives are very adamant that it's not the party
attacking people physically, they never condemn those actions either.
That was kind of my point, those parties are a Western version of radical islamist movements, but they don't realise it.
About terrorist organisations, I'm much more worried about our far right than any islamist groups, the latter have had one single failed attack, and even then it was a lone guy acting without any kind of actual support and failing, while the former have attacked a lot of people of the 'wrong' skin colour or people they disagree with politically. In the Nordic Countries we've also had lone lunatics from the far right actually killing a lot of completely innocent people pretty recently, in Sweden there was Peter Mangs
, and I think we all know what happened 3.5 years ago in Norway.
I'm even worried personally since I am one of those 'enemies of the nation', accepting and even endorsing my brother's Eritrean fiancée and their kids, not to mention that I'm a feminist, an anti-racist, pro-LGBT and belong to a sexual minority. I'm several times more likely to come across a right-wing sympathiser that wants to 'teach me a lesson' or even kill me, than a radical islamist that wants to do the same.
